The Melburnian II
Private Residential

Inspired by the idea of a jewelry box, Studio Tate created a compact and fabulous space filled with notable elements and hidden surprises concealed within the apartment’s surfaces.


The colour palette has been built around the judicious application of striking, bold tones: navy blue carpets, doors and skirting provide warmth and drama without constraining the volumes.

Details reflect the delicate shades and textures of a felt-lined treasure trove, from the soft grey and pink wallpaper lining the walk-in robe to the cocoon-like bathroom with its delicate pink painted ceiling, accented with black-veined pink marble.

A bevelled, diamond-shape island bench in the kitchen in grey marble gives it a gem-like form, while appliance cupboards have grey two pack timber finish, and the drawers, shelves and cupboards are lined in navy and pink accent colours.
